How I spend my Tuesday evenings this month…


I’m taking a four-week series of cooking classes at a great place called Gatherings Kitchen. I am having so much fun learning and cooking alongside other foodies like myself as well as the chefs who are teaching us. Last week I forgot my camera but we made the following meal:

Hot and Sour Mushroom soup

Cucumber Salad

Basmati rice

Beef and Vegetable Stir-fry

Almond Tuille cookies (fortune cookies)

For my group I made the Hot and Sour Mushroom soup. The whole meal was delicious and we all felt so proud of ourselves. Then last night we dug in deeper with new skills and made the following menu:

Carmelized Onion Tart

Spring Greens with Roasted Beets & Grilled Baby Leeks

Chicken Piccata

Fettuccine Alfredo

Rosemary Parmesan Breadsticks

Yogurt Lemon Cake

This week I did more work by making the cornmeal pastry crust for the tart, prepped and made the Yogurt Lemon cake and cooked the prepared chicken along with finishing the sauce for chicken piccata. We all made the pasta and breadsticks. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Stay tuned for next week’s report and pictures. I can’t wait!
